Enter at Your Own Risk | Shoe Zone

Welcome to the Shoe Zone. You know, like the no mans land in a frickin' war.

A protester threw an shoe at Wen Jiabao, the Chinese Prime Minister, as he was giving a speech at the Cambridge University Concert Hall yesterday.

Are Shoes turning into weapons of protest or what!

I kinda' like Mens Shoes, any kind really. I can't see myself throwing them at someone even if I was pissed-off at them. Bit of a waste of good shoes really. 

I wonder if these protesting nutcases miss their footwear after?
It seem to me that there is an Increase in Shoe Throwing. Ah, who really cares. 
It's really a stupid effort when you consider these guys never hit the target anyway. It's a bit silly to get arrested for missing, but there you have it!  It's just a continuation of the old bush shoe throw.

It wasn't that long ago that an angry journalist whipped a size 10 shoe at then President George Bush.

So here's my question: Should Shoe Throwing be only used for Heads of State or is anybody fair game?
Hey! What's up with That Stuff?

Michael Phelps | Olympic Swimmer Caught on Tape.

Ok, so Michael Phelps the most winning Olympic Swimmer of all time was 
Caught on Tape smoking something in a bong. 
Then he apologizes for smoking Dope! 

Aside from the admission of guilt, which he should have never made, 
this story is hardly news worthy.

SO WHAT! WHO CARES! I don't give a shit if he smokes pot and this would not have been an issue if it had not been widely publicised. It would have been a different thing if this had happened prior to the Games but it didn't  and he passed all testing.

What I do care about is the media shining a light on this and pretending that it is news. 
Slow day on the presses I guess.

Hey! The New President of the United States of America made it widely known before he was elected that he smoked the weeds and drank too much beer and I didn't hear or see ANY fallout in the press. Good Grief!

So now, Michael Phelps - a World Class Athlete who is a true Olympic Hero, has a little fun and the press is all over it like a wet rag. Go figure!

And here's my question: Do you care Michael Phelps he smoked a little pot or not?
Hey! What's up with that Stuff?
